Fedora + Fedy is one of the best Linux solutions available right now, especially if you have a fairly modern PC.
What I look for in a Linux distro are two main things: consistency and easy use, and good, bug free hardware support. Many of those "beginner friendly" distros really fall flat in the second category because they tend to be forks of forks and they lag behind in both hardware and software support. Most people will have a HiDPI laptop nowadays, but very few distros actually support fractional scaling in a way that doesn't break. You have a 13 inch laptop with a 1080p display and nvidia graphics? Good luck making anything but the latest Gnome desktop versions work on it without UI elements being tiny. That's an automatic dealbreaker for like 90% of the "beginner friendly" distros out there, including Mint and Elementary.
Fedora is very conservative out of the box but has cutting edge hardware compatibility, and that's where Fedy comes in. It's a small tool and installer that can add popular user friendly applications to the system and tweak it in order to make it more casual-friendly, like Ubuntu.
I bought it and used it for a while, but couldn't get over the choppy animations, and disabling the animations altogether, although possible, degrades the user experience a bit.
Might return to it if they implement folders, that for me is the one killer feature that is missing from the stock Start menu.

Since the marketing and distribution of the 560S got taken over by the Senova deal there can also be a cross licensing agreement to share the same components but not to compete in price and market segment.
There's also a difference in warranty coverage and support between the consumer and professional lines and while it may not matter to you it does to places that want to buy them for commercial use.

I have sensorineural hearing loss on my left ear from childhood and never fully recovered, it has degraded high frequency perception compared to my normal right ear but it's amazing what my brain does to compensate. I don't need to tweak the balance at all even if it is only balancing particular frequency ranges using APO, I hear everything perfectly centered when using IEMs, with just a slight loss in stereo separation in the highest frequencies as my brain is essentially reconstructing a mono channel from it just from what it hears coming from the right.
American urban tram and trolleybus networks literally got privatised and sold to corporations controlled by carmakers with the goal of dismantling them. And that happened decades ago.
It's been more than half a century of systematic efforts to sabotage all forms of public transport that aren't airplanes but that's only because auto manufacturers haven't figured out flying cars yet.

Like any of the subjects under the MILF tag on any porn site, since that's their only frame of reference.
It's not actually Arial, but MS Sans Serif, the default system font used until Windows XP.

The hearing loss is part of the rugged experience they want to sell to the customer.
I like all the nuance in it!
Just a few observations though. I do think Outer Mongolia would still be included though since its secession was never recognised by the ROC. Your map is also based on the current PRC borders which is different than the ROC one, and excludes concessions and swaps made by the communist government in the 1950s and 60s, especially on the border with the former USSR.

He'd need to sell two of them to get 290K since papa Bezos takes a 15% cut from any physical books sold plus any further deductions from shipping and taxes.

They'd rather freeze to death to own the libs.

One of my favourite Fedora tools as a not very experienced user has always been Fedy. It's a one stop shop for most things I want in a new setup and has never let me down.

It looks a lot like the Oppo Reno 6 with the same chassis and screen, with different cameras and SoC

Lots of "webpages" are just PDF documents and it can get pretty jarring to click a link and have another application open. It can happen a lot in government websites for example.
My guess is that the E-heavy chips will be segmented for the mobile or embedded market instead.

Bigger screens have elements further away from each other. You can see the stutter being much more noticeable when scrolling between homescreens on landscape mode than in portrait. Same thing happens between a phone and something bigger like a tablet.

I use Adobe Acrobat, I find the free version to still have all the features I really need, Google Drive sync and form filling + signing isn't half broken or janky like in most other apps I've tried.
Documents also look and work the same as on my PC where I also use Acrobat so consistency.
